First time restauranteurs Robert Maher and Thomas Glaessner wanted to create an upscale French-New American style bistro in the heart of Clarendon. Named in honor of Robert's late mother-in-law, Maison Cheryl was awaiting their building permit when they encountered difficulties with their contractor. 3G Architects recommended that Pizzano step in to salvage the situation. With many finishes and aesthetic design decisions up in the air, Pizzano Contractors mobilized immediately in order to meet the restaurant's opening date.
Working closely with interior designer Mai Dolinh, Pizzano provided value engineering and assisted in finish selections to meet the final design. Custom epoxy flooring, wood ceiling features, shiplap wall paneling, and decorative fixtures were incorporated throughout the space.
“As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.”
